OEM BMW Top Box

I was wondering if anyone fitted the BMW top box and if so how is it? What is the price, etc...? As I understand, one needs to replace the Alu Rack with an alternative one. It looks pretty nice and clean in my eyes....

It looks good, minor issue is that the lock can't be keyed to the 310 key. Another minor issue is that water can get behind the red perspex when riding in the rain, but can drain quite easily.

what i like is that one does not need any adaptor plate. it is neat. I do not care so much about keys, but from what I know this particular box CAN be keyed to the ignition key. i am ordering the box but it takes some time before it arrives from Germany...

My main issue is I am trying to keep a clean, empty look so when I need to carry stuff I use a backpack. Also, I think the prices BMW asks for its accessories are higher than I would ever want to spend.

Me and my friend were of the same opinion, but trust me it helps a lot when you gotta go for more than 2 days and struggle fitting the duffle bags all around. I do have a Rynox one, but after buying this including the inner lining case, I am so **** relieved with luggage problems

Last year I had to go on a 3-week trip to Cameroon. All my clothes and other stuff fit into a camping duffel bag I strapped to my back and rested on the passenger seat. Parked the bike for free at LAX airport right by the terminal. Had more space than I needed (I think it's 70 liters).

what if you go for a trip and need to have your body free to maneuver on bad roads or any road as a matter of fact...? with this bad, it looks like a suicide mission
